Supplying Artwork

Please ensure all artwork for print is supplied in line with these specifications.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.


We have put together a basic guide with this resource section to assist in supplying your print ready artwork. Should you need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our design team.


  • All non-vector artwork should be supplied at a minimum of 300 dpi.
  • For images smaller than actual size, increase dpi proportionately. e.g. 50% of actual size = 600dpi.
  • For images larger than actual size, decrease dpi proportionately. e.g. double actual size = 150dpi.
  • Please do not decrease resolution of images any lower than 100dpi.


All Artwork for printing should be supplied in CMYK only.

Any RGB artwork that is supplied will be converted to CMYK and this may affect the appearance of your chosen colours.

Pantone colours made up of CMYK should be checked on a correct Pantone colour chart before supplying finished artwork.

We cannot take responsibility for any unexpected results experienced from artwork that has been supplied in non-CMYK colours.

Colour Proofing

Digital proofs will not be 100% colour accurate to the final Litho print, they should be used as a guide only.

If you require a more accurate proof, we can provide a press proof, at an additional cost of £80 + VAT.


Pantone colours need to be checked on the correct paper stock i.e. Coated or Un-coated.

Please contact us if you are using any other colour matching system other than Pantone.

Please ensure that no elements of the design are set to overprint unless specifically required. We cannot always check for this and it is likely to generate unexpected results.


If you are using the transparency functions in any graphical programme, all transparencies must be flattened and the files then converted to PDF before supplying.

Transparencies not converted correctly can cause unexpected results and Menu Printing UK cannot be held responsible should they not be converted correctly within the files supplied.
